Eco-Art: Turn It Off
This environmental art project focuses on the creation of light switch stickers by elementary and secondary students that remind the OISE community to “turn off the lights” in unoccupied spaces. These stickers were created during workshops presented by OISE teacher candidates in our partner schools. These mini-artworks have been made into hundreds of stickers that are being placed above the light switch plates in OISE offices and classrooms. Ever-present throughout the OISE building, these eye-catching artworks will remind the OISE community about our commitment to environmental and sustainability education, as well as encourage energy conservation in the building.
Stickers that are outlined have been made into stickers and are currently installed in classrooms at OISE and in the partner schools.
